Privacy & Disclosure

Concept Art Empire(CAE) does collect personal data anonymously(country of origin, age, sex) and this is curated only for personal analytics. We also run ads and use some affiliate programs.

This privacy policy is meant to help you understand what data is collected, how it’s used/stored, and which affiliate programs we participate in.

CAE does not store any personal information from any visitor on our servers. We do run ads through AdThrive and that information is tracked through 3rd party platforms. However it is possible to block this information from being tracked through analytics and other similar Google programs.

You can opt out from this by following Google’s step-by-step guide.

Through Google Analytics we collect information to understand user behaviors and patterns while browsing the site. This information is processed in a way so that it does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of anyone visiting our website.

Advertising Privacy Statement

Concept Art Empire is affiliated with AdThrive, LLC (“AdThrive”) for the purposes of placing advertising on the Site. AdThrive uses standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of ads, including those provided by Google, Inc. and its affiliates. We publish interest-based advertisements on CAE; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help understand your interests, AdThrive, Google and our other advertising partners will track your behavior on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

By using this Site, you consent to the use of such cookies and the sharing of data captured by such cookies with AdThrive, Google, and our other third party partners. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser by visiting: https://adssettings.google.com. You can also opt out of the network cookie using those settings or using the Network Advertising Initiative’s multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: http://optout.networkadvertising.org. However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained.
